History of Chelsea Market and the high line.

Milk and cookies never tasted so good. Chelsea market has so much to offer ..not just food. Who would have thought that Nabisco crackers started it all. Our guide was a historian and his stories were wonderful and had us glued to his every word. The food was excellent and we had a good walk along the high line.

Having been on the Greenwich Village food tour in 2006, I wanted to book something a bit different for my honeymoon this year (August 2010). The tour was brilliant. The guide was charismatic and full of insider information about the stops on the tour. He made the effort to learn all of the names of those in the group (about 12 people!). He was also at pains to provide food that suited mine and my husband's vegetarian needs. The food was excellent. My particular highlight was the cookie from Eleni's. We loved seeing such a new a vibrant district and stayed in the area for dinner that evening. I would highly recomment this tour to anyone.

Sindy, our guide was fantastic - funny, smart and very knowledgeable - it was clear that she had a good relationship with the businesses we visited and was equally able to build rapport quickly with the group to ensure everyone felt included and looked after during the tour. The handout with all the tour stops listed and the local restaurant information etc will be invaluable for future visits to the area. The food tastings were good, especially the cookie and the jellies! Finishing up on the high line was a real surprise for us as we had not anticipated that part of the tour and we now have something to tell our friends back in the UK. I have also been on the Greenwich Village tour and am looking forward to trying another tour on my next trip to New York.

I had a difficult time choosing which tour to select as this was my 1st time to NYC. The idea of seeing the Meatpacking District really caught my eye. Travelling alone can be a little daunting so I thought this was a good way to start my experiences. So many food choices & so little time.

Kurt was amazing/ very entertaintaing/ full of information. He made the group feel very welcome & I will definately recommend your tours to anyone especially to first timers to your wonderful City.

Tour guide Dianne did a great job providing insights into the Chelsea Market and High Line. Enjoyed the tastings very much and the inside look at 3 excellent restaurants. Dianne's enthusiasm and energy much appreciated.

This tour made me discover a neighbourhood of New York that I didn't know about. Our guide Bob did a great job of instructing us on the history of this former industrial area as well as the wonderful transformation it has undergone recently. And the food was pretty good too!
